It’s Monday night as I prep this quiz, ahead of my girls’ trip to the Virgin Islands!  To psych myself up further, and distract from my 3:00 a.m. wake-up time, I decided to prepare the quiz early so it’s queued for publishing.  All lyrics below contain the word “beach.”  Simple enough?  Good.  Hope you are having a great Friday wherever you might be.
